BLOWING ROCK — The Blowing Rock Women’s Show celebrated female artists in the area and supported a local women’s organization.

The annual Blowing Rock Women’s Show took place on June 9 to support the Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge. Featuring women artists and held at the American Legion Building in Blowing Rock, there was live music, guest speakers, food, drinks and live streamed artists from other states and countries.

The show set out to “celebrate some of the best female artists” that exhibit in Blowing Rock, including Kim Abernethy, Amy Dixon, Cristy Dunn, Lindsay H. Jones, Anita Lewis, Lori McNee, Murray Parker, Tanvi Pathare and Hillary Scott.

This special exhibition supported the efforts of the Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge.

The Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge is a “collective giving organization formed and sustained by a group of women philanthropists who want to make a positive impact on the lives of women and girls in the High Country.” The organization believes that all women have the right to equality, safety, opportunity and self-determination in every aspect of their lives.

“It’s been amazing working with Martin House... I’ve met a ton of people in the community and get to interact with artists and introduce them to folks in the community,” Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge Executive Director Karen Marinelli. “It’s about working together. Collectively, we can just get a whole lot more done.”

The Martin House Gallery Blowing Rock Women’s Show has annually supported The Women’s Fund of the Blue Ridge for the past four years and plans to continue to do so for years to come.
